In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had three pieces being published this year, and they're all available now!
My poem, "Widow's Walk," appears in volume 3 of the Unchaste Anthology. The collection was in a very limited run, but if you want a copy, you can find @unchastereaders on Instagram and ask if any are available. It's a beautiful book, and I'm thrilled to have been a part of it.
My short sf story, "Shelter," is in the Two Hour Transport Anthology 2019, which just became available on Amazon this week. It's the first anthology put out by the Two Hour Transport reading series, and it's quite a collection! Again, I'm thrilled to be involved in this project and can't wait for my copy to arrive.
And a dark fantasy short story, "Sargasso," is in Supernatural Tales #40, which you can get in print or ebook format.
The wild thing is, that's not all! Another one of my poems, "Lost Soul," was accepted for a combined poetry/art show called Stanza: Fire here in Seattle at Push/Pull Gallery. Writers submitted their work and a small group of us were selected for the show. Our works were then provided to artists, who created new art based on them! I also had the pleasure of reading my piece at the kickoff event with some of the other writers.
And there's more. I have two MORE pieces that will be published later this year. My flash fiction piece on fatherhood, "On The Day You Were Born," is slated to appear in the July issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly. This fall, my short urban fantasy story, "Nilscape," will be included in the anthology Graffiti, due out around October. (Info for both to follow when it's available. Links to all my work can always be found on my Published Works page too.) I can't wait! Mostly I'm just pinching myself that all this is happening right now.
At the end of this month, I'm going to the Locus Awards for the first time. (No, I haven't been nominated, but I thought it'd be fun to attend and fangirl since they're literally down the street from my place.) And on a personal note, I got engaged to my longtime fella in March. I haven't started to navigate the wild world of wedding planning yet, but that's definitely coming up. Meanwhile, more writing!
